Where I'm having to work with projects that perhaps jumped to git too
soon, I'm using TortoiseHg with git-hg. It provides views and navigation
tools that I've been used to and gives a common base for CVS and SVN as
well as GIT and the native HG which I've been using locally as an
alternative to GIT. I don't know about the current GIT UI tools but it
was simply not cross platform and complete at the time I was having to
live with the change ... In my book GIT may have filled holes in CVS
operations, but it also lost key facilities CVS was good at. The
resulting project ports are now difficult to work with as a whole where
one has dozens of isolated module which on CVS one could create a single
view of selected 'sub-repos' :(
